The Department of Communities is responsible for the reform and delivery of human services in Western Australia. Our areas of focus include housing, child protection, disability services, community initiatives and regional services reforms.
We partner and collaborate with community sector organisations, individuals, businesses and other government agencies to strengthen communities with safe children, strong homes and empowered people.
When we combine our efforts with others we can have an even more profound impact than when we work alone.
